Browsing through craiglist for tucson when I said to myself, "Hey, self, let's see what's up on the New Orleans board." And...wow. From calls for good weed (willing to spend $200) to someone offering their spare rooms for evacuees for $100/night (this one really got my goat) to people offering their rooms for evacuees for NOTHING (this made me very happy), it was interesting to see the rideshares starting to take shape.

I think in a few years, craigslist could be tapped by local Emergency Services to get some idea of how to get many people out of impending danger. Well, at least a hurricane anyways. :)

For some reason my clock in the living room likes to randomly start blinking. So annoying. Gonna go fix it.

Wow. I'm terrible at following the news. Were those ads facetious, or is there really a need to put evacuees into housing? I would guess the former is the case, but then sometimes I'm really in the dark about things.

If you are contemplating evacuating and don't really have a place to go, that's a good way to find a place to crash. If I lived closer to NO I would probably offer up the couch and the floor to a couple of people, just so they would have a destination.
There is a time to charge, for example: 2000, Tallahassee, FL. Election snafu AND biggest football game of the season: Florida State vs. Florida. Well, the reporters, et al were kicked out of their rooms. People had reservations after all. People all around the city opened up their homes to the stranded reporters...for a price. My roommate was up for it, but we didn't have the time to go and offer it up. :) See, that's not an emergency, but to charge someone who is running for their life $100/night is despicable.

Oh, and next time there is to be envelope stuffing, give me a call, I'm not afraid of paper cuts :)

I'm glad you're willing to take a paper cut for the cause! Actually, I did a pretty large stack without any sort of cut. I did, however, have a lot of photocopier toner on my fingers by the time I had been there a little over an hour. I'll let you know the next time there are fliers to fold and envelopes to fill.
